The importance of play is ageless. Play brings people together! Play supports improved mood, memory and health through active participation and connection to local community. These benefits extend beyond direct participation, with families and residents offered an extension of family and community through relationships formed at playgroup.
Intergenerational Playgroup sessions are a fun, safe and educational way for children, parents, caregivers and older Australians to join together through a fun weekly activity to learn and connect through play. Bringing different generations together fosters awareness, understanding and respect between generations, and breaks down social barriers and isolation commonly experienced by new parents and ageing communities.
